Giants want WR Odell Beckham to play entire career in NY

Sources tell Schefter that Beckham is absolutely sending a message to the Giants and he does want a new contract.

Just as Odell Beckham Jr.is talking about his contract without actually talking about it, the Giants are saying they want to get it done without doing anything about it.

Adding to the speculation, Beckham retweeted a link Tuesday night to an article about Schefter defending the wide receiver.

Beckham has said that he plans to attend the team's mandatory three-day minicamp, which starts next Tuesday.

The three-time Pro Bowler is set to earn $1.839 million this season. NY exercised Beckham's fifth-year option on his contract, meaning he will make about $8.5 million in the 2018 season.

Beckham is widely considered to be one of the top five wide receivers in the National Football League, but still playing on his rookie contract, he is paid far less than other star wideouts. He is now slated to earn roughly $1.9 million in 2017 and is vastly underpaid compared to his production since entering the league in 2014.

And, it's easy to see why, he's scheduled to make $1.8 million this year at the end of his rookie deal. The Giants are now about $8 million under the salary cap, according to OverTheCap.com. Despite the past consequences of daring to call him out, I still firmly believe that a player whom the team hopes will grow up should do the adult thing and explain his absence with his own voice, not with someone else's. His contract does not include any bonuses for offseason workouts with the team.
